New Kitchen Cabinets vs. Refinishing

New Kitchen Cabinets vs. Refinishing

If you are considering redesigning your kitchen, you will most likely consider removing your old kitchen cabinets and starting afresh with a brand-new kitchen. New cabinets can be a perfect opportunity to redesign your layout, kitchen style and even add in more storage. Of course, the internet suggests refacing or refinishing your cabinets but is it the right choice? 

Kitchen cabinets with vital damages need to replacement with new ones. Covering up warps, wood damage, mildew, or other issues that affect the quality of the material is only a makeshift solution to the problems. The formerly mentioned are all considered excessive damage and demand an immediate repair. 

You should also consider replacing your kitchen cabinets if the layout or design of the space is not compatible anymore with you. If the biggest complaint with your kitchen is that the cabinets all seem to be out-of-date, or your no more favorite color, the only solution is to replace them with a more thoughtful layout.

Replacing the kitchen cabinets can alter the way your kitchen looks. From traditional to modern, the cabinets are one of the main features of a kitchen. Interchanging for a varied style can influence the overall outlook of the kitchen dramatically. 

When you buy new cabinets and replace them with new ones, your kitchen cabinets replenish everything about them. Cabinets of high quality can last for decades. When installing new cabinets in the kitchen, ensure you’re making a necessary home remodeling that you can hopefully enjoy in years to come. 

If you’re not satisfied with the layout or size of your existing kitchen cabinets, buying new cabinets lets you discard a design that doesn’t work and replaces it with one etched to your needs and requirements. Our home design professionals can help you chose what will work best for you and your family.

 In the deliberation over whether to refinish or replace your kitchen cabinets, only the second option lets you fix everything you dislike about your current cabinets. Yes, you can change a lot with refacing, but not everything. By refacing your kitchen cabinets, they will remain the same size and shape as they were before. They will most likely hold the same stuff too. 

Refacing might upgrade the look of kitchen cabinets, but it doesn’t certainly extend its lifetime. Since you’re only replacing the anterior or outer part of the cabinet, the crate underneath providing the structure and support has still the same age. And when the box or wears out, you will need to replace the entire cabinet. Hence, replacing cabinets right away would be the wisest option. 

Most cabinet refinishing services still use solvent-based finishes with VOCs, which emit toxic, smelly fumes which can linger around for weeks, particularly in kitchens with poor ventilation. Replacing kitchen cabinets does not cause such inconveniences.
